Looking for crank drive mechanism for Koenig R100 winch or photos so I can make one

I have a Koenig R100 crank drive winch on a 1964 CJ5 and the drive mechanism that engages the engine crankshaft to the winch is missing. I want to find another or build a new one. Original was never a very good setup and caused lots of vibration due to misalignment of the engage mechanism and the crankshaft pulley. If anyone has photos of the original design or if anyone has made an improved design I would appreciate any info you can share. Thank you!

Interesting, all the Koenig winches that I have seen are driven by a t case mounted PTO. I'm curious how far the winch has to be offset to get the drive shaft to align with the engine crank.

There is a short drive chain to transfer power from the crankshaft engagement shaft to the winch so the winch still sits centered on the bumper. No offset is required. As I recall there was a flange that rides on a keyed shaft and slides into the crankshaft flange to engage the power. The shaft is supported on one end in a bearing that is free to swivel slightly to allow for any misalignment.

Interesting.
Might try some of the other websites such as ecj5.com or the 2a site. If nothing else, you can go the more conventional route.....

That might be where I end up. I found a PTO and driveshaft that would fit my transfer case.
